  1. I didn't officially "get this today" but I did order it. Going to dip my toes into the 3D printing set. Should be here by next weekend so, just have to decide what to print first. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08LKQLZRR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  2. There are some sites that have 3D files for cars that can be bought, or some have free files too. There are many, I've found a few sites, but I can't remember the one I like atm, if I find it I'll link it. But for now here's one https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/ford-super-duty Just google 3D print files with what you're looking for and you might find exactly what you're looking for.
  3. They have shut down orders till Apr 19th, there's a banner at the top of the page.....Mr Vincent is correct. Looks like orders are on hold till they release their next items. https://an-modeltrucks.com/
  4. I feel you, I've not touched my build in weeks. I did get my wheels/tire combo ordered, they were custom made and 3D printed so hopefully they'll ship soon. Lots of great progress guys. Looking forward to more updates. Hoping to get back to mine soon, maybe some paint this weekend.
  5. Fugu released some more update pics. Looks like the 3D tests are printed, and they're working on some fine tuning. Hopefully not too much longer for this.
  6. Yeah, yours came out amazing Tom. It's actually probably the best and most detailed snap kit I can think of. I really wish Revell had done a full on kit of this truck, but atleast this snap version was much better than the quick build version they did on the Gen2. The only real knock against this snap kit is that they did not include waterslide decals, the stickers are good for the kids, sure, but given the size of the sheet, they could have easily added another small sheet with proper waterslide decals. Sort of an update....I got all the parts cleaned and primed before I came to work tonight, but, like the idiot I am, I forgot to take a pic. I'll post one when I get home, before painting later on today. Shooting for a 3 day build. I should be able to get all the painting done today and probably the clear as well.
  7. I've got another one of these in yesterday, and since I've been in a bit of a modeling funk for the past month or more I think I'll crack this open later today (chillin' at work right now) and go for a start to finish build (fingers crossed) without getting sidetracked. Not sure what colour I'm going with yet....I've got a ton of opened bottles, so likely I'll just pic something that's got enough paint left in it to do this up quick, instead of ordering anything new. Always open to any suggestions too. Hoping to have an actual update later on this afternoon.
  8. NP Dan. Glad to help out. Why not either put the second car on just steelies (so it looks like its on skinnier transport wheels) or jack it up on stands like its being worked on till you get another set of the minilites?
  9. Following.... I got one of these on my "to do list" which is far too long BTW you might want to try this link https://www.modelbuilderswh.com/collections/wheels-tires/products/minilite-15-wheels-tires-set-1-24th-scale Looking good so far Dan. The trailer looks amazing.
  10. Most of their TK's are around the $50-60 US range. I'm betting this one will be higher as their doing interior and exterior details as well as wheels/tires.....my guess is $80ish but that's a guess I've not seen them post anything on a price point yet.

  12. The guys at Fugu Garage are working on a 2020 Shelby GT500 TK for the new Tamiya Mustang GT4 kit. Here are some pics from their FB page of the 3D print files they will make the resin masters from. The TK is also suppose to include all parts needed to make the GT4 race car into the GT500 road car...clear resin and wheels and tires as well. Can't wait to see this in person.
  13. Well I'm not going to finish this year on time, unfortunately. This year's build fought me all the way, not the kit, which is challenging, but everything else. First my exhaust fan on my paint booth fried about 10 mins before the start so I had to go to the hardware store and pick up a new one and install it before I could start. Then my airbrush gave me fits, crappy primer coats followed by terrible paint coats. I was forced to do about nine layers to get decent coverage with sanding and a lot of swearing in between. Finally I figured it out and my last two coats of paint were "descent" but definitely not perfect. Once I finally got the paint done, I spent the next two hours looking for the decals I wanted to use (which I had in my hands two days before the start). I was just about to give up when they magically appeared. Luckily I only used a few so they went down fast and well and I was then able to get an "ok" clear on the whole thing. And finally as the clear was setting up, I decided to have a snack and a rest but started feeling unwell so I ended up sleeping for about 4 hours. Take all that BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH out of the equation, I think I would have finished with no issues. Oh well, next year. Anyways, I only took a couple pics, And this is what I was shooting for, hopefully I can get close to it.
  14. Another year down and another 24HR build coming this weekend (Daytona weekend). I'll be watching the race and building this I'll try to keep up with some updates as the weekend progress', but there are a lot of pieces in this kit. The livery I've chosen should help speed up things a bit, but time will tell. More on Saturday afternoon.
  15. Nice start. Looks great. You've leap frogged me on the progress. I love that orange. Will be watching.
